is do no harm. we learned that obviously from sarah palin. most americans look at the vice presidential debate and say i'm still going to vote for romney or the president. unless there's a game changer like a sarah palin moment. that's not going to happen on thursday. i go back to my original point. these are two very smart people sticking to the talking points. at the end of the day, now what ryan does do for the ticket is he energizes the base on the republican side. also remember back in 2008 that joe biden and barack obama were not friends. this was a political marriage of convenience. joe biden was -- >> he has come to love him. >> understandably so. same thing with dick cheney and george w. bush. just psychologically it's like dick cheney was the grandfather that's been around for a couple times. back to romney. the question is, whether or not vice president biden will make a gaffe or if congressman ryan will say something that's so outlandish like the 47% that would be a game changer. that most likely won't happen. >> like the 30% he's already said? >> that doesn't -- >> it feels
presidential debates now. >> reporter: who could forget that wink. then-governor sarah palin winking during her 2008 debate with fellow vice presidential nominee joe biden. not just once, but some half a dozen times. then there's senator lloyd benson's dig at senator dan quayle in 1988. >> i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> reporter: memorable moments, but hardly game-changers. while presidential debates can affect the outcome of an election, vice presidential debates like this week's upcoming match-up between vice president biden and his gop challenger paul ryan, are a different animal. >> you need to be able to see that each vice presidential candidate has hit the standard of readiness, that they will be ready in an emergency in a national crisis to be able to step into the oval office and to take the reins of the presidency. but beyond that in terms of the actual debate itself, unless there is a star killing or star catching moment, it rarely changes the course of the debate. >> reporter: democratic strategist donna bazille says the fi
. >> a lot was said four years ago about joe biden's debate with sarah palin. now, he has known congressman ryan for quite some time. they have dealt together. how do you expect the tone to be different? >> well, remember, four years ago, biden had really one big challenge. he didn't want to make any major mistakes. but his only really great big challenge in that debate was sarah palin was this new figure, very controversial, had had some recent slip-ups. he had to not come across as condescending. he had to have an even performance, get through the night. this is going to be a very different night. as you said, the two men know each other, they both have very in-depth policy backgrounds. i think you'll see a lot more depth of policy knowledge exchanged, a lot more barbed attacks, and biden's going to have to go after ryan for those particular policies and talk a lot about his own expertise in not only budget matters but also foreign policy. i think you'll see a lot more depth in terms of the conversation on thursday than you did four years ago. >> carrie dan, thank you and good luck out th
. and the political media fell for it. he was not exposed as the sarah palin no-nothing that he was. he was treated with un-earned respect and his campaign was fleefully welcomed by the media as refreshing. he was regarded as a political star. and when he was elected there was serious talk in the political media of changing the united states constitution to allow foreign born naturalized citizens to run for president of the united states. the republican party was very proud of their new star. >> ladies and gentlemen, america is back. we are back because of the perseverance, character and leadership of the 43rd president of the united states, george w. bush. >> thanks to his sheer incompetence, schwarzenegger quickly became a very unpopular governor and managed to salvage his re-election campaign by abandoning the republicans and adopting the democrats. he ended up tripling the state's debt. i, for one, don't blame schwarzenegger for any of that. schwarzenegger has always, very plainly and publicly, been a clown. i blame the political media for not treating him as such. political pundits spend endle
people, joe biden won almost all the debates over hillary and edwards. >> look what he did with the sarah palin debate last cycle. everyone thought that could have been a disaster and it wasn't. if he can prepare for these things, don't underestimate joe biden. >> the show is almost over and i'm getting tired. >> look for today's reaction of obama's speech later today. >> miss kucinich. >> usa's team last night for the debate, susan page, everybody back at the office, you did a great job. go team. >> senator brown, give me your shameless plug. >> you know, the reality is this race is right down to the wire, but romney last night showed he was a master of the facts. and the president surprisingly, i counted a dozen factual misstatements, really has to do his homework. >> i always want to thank the university of denver, du, i don't understand why you folks are in colorado, called the university of colorado cu and the university of denver, du, but a wonderful campus. that's it for this edition of "the daily rundown." i'm hitting the road with the president. see you at points from madison. co
. >> in 2008 with the introduction of sarah palin was the first time the vice presidential debate was ever the highest 01:39:43:rate ed debate. we have this again. >> governor romney, last night, people say he mangled the truth to put it gently. the obama campaign -- they did a smart thing today. got up bright and early this morning realizing they took a loss last night and began pointing out where governor romney had not said what he said before, had not stuck to the truth. however, we learned again last night, if we needed reminding, that there's power in taking the view. listen, i'm frequently in error, but never in doubt. i believe what i'm telling you. and that carries its own power and strength. >> especially when you're talking to 50 million or 60 million people at a time. that is a perfect segue to everything we're doing in the rest of the hour on this show. dan rather, always such an honor to have you. >> thank you, rachel. enjoy to be on. >> "dan rather reports" is on axs tv. okay. we'll be right back. save up to 35% and get 3 years interest-free financing on tempur-pedic. but hu
and people wanted to see that because sarah palin was the trust this, paul ryan is not a draw in this way, unless he takes off his shirt, perhaps. >> i think paul ryan is going to be a drag. he doesn't on he doesn't express himself in the way it relates to anyone in who is in the room. >> this past week -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> this past week, we saw moderate mit appear at the debate. he went from being the conservative to we can get long to we can work together, the healthcare time, the time as governor in massachusetts and ryan is still a conservative. won't the democrats try to draw him out saying this is what romney-ryan tech set about? >> absolutely. joe biden foras asplasid as obama was the other night, biden will be as tough. he's going to throw out red meat and go after ryan on his stance on abortion, women's issues. he's going to hit the social issues and it's going to be about foreign policy, which ryan has very, very limited experience. >> and medicare. i imagine he will try to deliver what obama didn't, the message that, in their opinion, the republicans are going to mes
the ticket's prospects on election day. >> i didn't feel excited like i did in the last election, with sarah palin and john mccain. so after last night, i got that adrenaline going and i'm pumped up and ready to roll. >> we had a drendrenaline that wouldn't believe. >> reporter: mitt romney will spend three of the first five post-debate days in this battleground state. even here, romney supporters admit before the debate they were worried about polls that showed their candidate behind. even their enthusiasm was luke-warm. >> with romney, before last night, i would say we were 50%, 55%. after last night we're at 100%. >> last night was energizing. it was neat to see him answer questions clearly with detail on questions that i had questions about myself. >> reporter: but obama advisers know their target audience is undecided and swing voters. they quickly rolled out this ad that romney's tax plan wouldn't hurt the middle class. romney supporters are convinced their candidate has changed the course of this campaign. and some are changing their plans, too, to start actively working on his behalf
's in a jam because polls say he is not likable and he's in a second jam because he's not sarah palin. you know, people know that this has been a successful businessman and occasionally successful politician throughout his career, so this is somebody that they expect a decent performance from. they expect that this guy could go in front of a bunch of investors or shareholders and could deliver a pitch. if he doesn't meet that expectation, then, you know, then that's trouble for him. however to answer liz's question in 2002 when he ran for governor he was struggling and he was able to bait his opponent to kind of aggressively attack him in a way in the debates that didn't play well for her. they had tested that ahead of time. you know, there's some sexism behind the whole -- behind that card. it worked for them. after those debates he kind of cruised into the governor's mansion. >> i guess, eeric, maybe not a guess, everyone is concerned about appearing smug or overly confident, maybe this debate will be kind of the most sparkless debate we've seen yet, because there's so much sort of pro f
sarah palin from the great state of alaska, and i'm so excited today to endorse my good friend christian "the maverick quths "la bella for president of alpha kappa sigh. >> that was mr. laugh bela's aunt playing the really. proud and thrusting young gun of the republican congressional staffers with not a stain on his reputation. but just imagine if christian labella had been working for a democrat ink congressman. imagine the uproar if a single photograph appeared of this young man alongside, say, vice president joe biden. speaking of which, here is what mr. labella's friend, paul ryan, says about the issue of media prejudice. >> i think it goes without saying that there's definitely a media bias. look, i'm a conservative, chris.
by the sarah palin hurricane or whatever you choose to describe that event as being what we witnessed. but he did not know or does not know. >> well, this is quite a process isn't it, tamron? >> mm-hmm. >> the environment is such that every -- every step you take, every move you make, to quote sting, is -- everybody will be watching you. it's -- everything so focus group now. we slice and dice every nothing segments, walmart moms or office park dads or whatever and you have to get them here and you have to get them there. if you get caught up in that, i think, there is a danger of losing sight of a larger pitcher and losing yourself. and i think that's what people will be watching for tonight, they don't want a pitch at office park dads. they want -- they want the candidates to speak to the country. >> but i'm curious, michael, how many people do you think are watching, not asking for an exact number, i don't think you walk around counting folks, your idea on thoughts, how many you believe, what percentage are actually watching this debate tonight to have their minds changed or to pick a cand
't matter. >> sarah palin, people watched it the way you watch a nascar race with a fascination that there may be an accident or a wreck. but with the debate coming up, there is this tension on the ticket, republican ticket, between paul ryan who campaigns and gave the speech remember at the convention, there was archly ideological about creating a new world that the president has described at darwinian and pessimistic and dark. and he gives joe biden a lot of lines of attack on the ryan budget, the medicare plan and all those things. the one thing that ryan has done for the last two years has been very, very, did i say very, very specific about all these things. so he can't do the peer wets the way mitt romney did, but i think what joe biden's task is going to be is to bo right past ryan and to usewets the way mitt romney did, but i think what joe biden's task is going to be is to bo right past ryan and to use this occasion to go after the guy he's running with. people don't care that much about ryan, only that he's a stand-in -- >> that's my point, he'll have a hard time defen
: governor sarah palin. this is just incredible to me. can we see this? i know it's hard to because it's over my fat head, yes, but the poor cameramans saying, neil, your head's a planetary system, we can't get past it. if you can try though, it's interesting. that's senator of hatch of utah. i don't think he's saying president obama had a good night. as we pan the room and the throng, i saw portman, i saw robert gibbs i think. here's what's interesting. when this started, folks, remember what they said about each of their candidates. he's not a good debater. he's really not very good at these kind of one-on-one exchanges. he's all but unable to walk, talk, and chew gum at the same time. now, after the debates, they are all einsteins, and that they delivered a kind of a moment, and it was a home run. i suspect we'll probably see the vice presidential debates going into with the expectations low and afterwards saying how great they did afterwards. i have no problem with that. i built a college career on it. some of you argue a professional career. keep the expectations low, and shock them on t
, beep, beep, beep. >> stephanie: remember they used to do the sarah palin and hillary sketches on snl. when she was told to do the pitbull joke again. lipstick. there it is. very good. [ applause ] perfect. all right. paul ryan, he's been saying yeah, there's been some missteps. >> we've had some missteps but at the end of the day the choice is really clear. we're giving people a very clear choice. >> stephanie: yes, yes. clearer and clearer. and then he proceeded to screw it up a little more by saying -- >> it's -- you wouldn't -- i wouldn't -- >> stephanie: dana in maryland. >> caller: good morning, everybody. how you doin'? >> stephanie: good. >> caller: i saw pictures from seattle. it looked fun. i like ron reagan jr. he's awesome. >> stephanie: he's awesome. >> caller: okay. so yeah, the debates i just hope that they talk about women's issues. i think that obama can slam him there. >> stephanie: by the way -- have you seen the new ads that are supposed to appeal to women with all of the b

. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here is a clip from that, we'll get you to respond to that moment. >> you voted for the war and now you oppose the war, you're one who says, as so many politicians do, i was for it before i was against it or vice versa, americans are craving straight talk. hey, if you voted for it, tell us why you voted for it and you you also said that barack obama was not ready to be command ner chief and i know again you opposed the move he made to try it cut off funding for the troops and i roux inspect that for you, i don't know how you can defend that position now. >> remember, "saturday night live" of course, didn't want to answer her own questions, aski asking her own questions instead of answering the moderator. >> she was attacking the record and you'll see both do in the next debate. ryan will attack the current president of the presiden

that he wants to be their president too so just like sarah palin made the mistake of always calling him the -- he's running with terrorists and disrespecting the president, he's going to pay the price for that. >> all right. >> in the election this year. >> we'll see how that goes tonight. keep watching. keep watching bill. i've already heard you are a frequent caller and they love to have you on, so keep calling back. >> next to diane in baltimore maryland. are you there? >> yes, i am. >> great welcome to the bill press show. >> good morning, how are you? >> i'm fine, how are you? >> i'm wonderful. >> we could go on like this all morning. >> i'm good, by the way diane thank you for asking.

high-wire act last time in 2008 when he had to go against sarah palin. i think he came out of that debate looking like the statesman. i think ryan has to pass the commander in chief test. i'm not sure if when people look at paul ryan they see someone who could fill the chair in the oval office. >> robert costa, your headline, sir. bring it home. >> "biden with a smile survives, ryan for the most part shines." >> that's not what you submitted, but we'll take it. we're easy here. explain, please. >> i think, as you mentioned, vice president biden is a very experienced debater, but i think his challenge here is to have a little bit of energy, to have a smile, but to also survive against paul ryan, who though inexperienced on the national stage, is quite intelligent. i think we'll be bringing a lot of numbers, a lot of analysis to the debate. but biden has that populous touch. i think it will really help him. >> it really is going to be fascinating to watch on thursday and talk about as well. who do you think is going to win that thing, robert? >> i think it's going to be a dra
